Halloween Throwback–

Amy Winehouse

A long shift at work and a nasty cold kept me from providing you with the weekly Halloween throwback yesterday. So please enjoy…

368_1040548254256_5569_nLet me start by saying Amy Winehouse is one of my favorite singer/songwriters of all time, and that I wore this costume in 2008, long before her death. (This picture was legitimately taken in my high school cafeteria.) Now let me say that, yes, the “Rehab?” wife beater I’m wearing says “NO, NO, NO” on the back. I got this incredibly realistic beehive wig on Ebay, and the floral hairpiece and many, many temporary tattoos are from your average party/costume store. Although the shirt is a reference to one of Amy’s most famous hits, and the woman was, admittedly, a hot mess at times, the fact remains that she had a beautiful presence and a strong sense of style. Sometimes I wish I’d worn something to reflect her passion for retro fashion and sweetheart necklines.
